Exactly One Year and Four Months Ago

I knew it’s bound to fail


Exactly one year and four months ago

Given a chance to turn back time

I would stop, think, just breathe

And not let frustration take over me

If I did have control over myself

I wouldn’t have taken the road towards you.

Exactly one year and four months ago

Given a chance to turn back time

I would stop, think and retreat

From the moment that I knew it’s just you and me

If I did not play pretend that I was okay with it

Then I wouldn’t have that drink with you.

Exactly one year and four months ago

Given a chance to turn back time

I would stop, clear my head and just sit

And not take your hand when you asked me to dance

If I wasn’t feeling drunk in love

Then I would’ve not felt how warm you were close to me

Exactly one year and four months ago

Given a chance to turn back time

I would stop, pull away and leave

And not take your arms and kiss you deep

If I wasn’t feeling awfully right

Then I wouldn’t be so entangled with your need

Exactly one year and four months ago

Given a chance to turn back time

I would stop, step away and never look back

And not search for you amidst the crowd

If I was just wise enough

Then I wouldn’t be writing here with my head down.
